MARAPI (VOLCANO) CLIMBING SUMATRA

Mighty Mount Marapi (don’t mix him up with his raging namesake on Java!) rises more than 2000 metres above Bukittinggi and the surrounding ricefields (2900 m above sea level).

The climb is a wonderful hike, taking you through rain forest and rugged wasteland up to the smoking crater. Up and down will take you about 10 hours. You need warm clothes,  decent shoes and a reasonable degree of fitness.  Basically any healthy person can do it.  

 

2 options for Marapi hiking: Start in the morning, be back late in the afternoon (wonderful trip), OR start around midnight and watch the sun rise, and be back around lunch time (truly amazing).
